Here's a lovely bright performance of the Haydn Piano Trio:
In this next piece the Monument Trio are videoing themselves in a sound check play-through of the Valse Russe from Bridge's Miniatures:

Gill Herbert (violin)
Gill studied with Sydney Griller at the Royal Academy of Music in London, and won a scholarship to have lessons with Hugh Maguire in her 4th year. After leaving college she did a mixture of freelance orchestral playing and teaching, as well as have a family. Up until recently she led the Richmond Orchestra, and now enjoys playing with the Surrey Mozart Players and local chamber groups in and around Surrey.

She studied cello with David Simpson and piano with Ivy Dickson and was awarded the Drummond Sharpe prize and the Herbert Walenn prize. As a cellist she has appeared throughout the country, both as an orchestral player and soloist. Currently she performs regularly with the Surrey Mozart Players and much enjoys being a member of chamber music groups, giving concerts in and around Surrey. In addition to her playing career, Hilary has also been in great demand as a teacher of both cello and piano.
Lynda Chang (piano)
Lynda studied piano for four years with Kendall Taylor at the Royal College of Music where she achieved a 1st class honours B.Mus. and was awarded the Tagore gold medal, RCM’s annual nomination for the most outstanding student of the year. Although her professional career was spent in the computer industry, Lynda has been able to return to music and is kept busy as soloist, accompanist, chamber musician, avid concert goer, opera fanatic and occasional reviewer.
